The benefits of using Thermal Labels!
Easy to use and cost effective, thermal label on rolls have long been the choice of labels for many UK and International businesses. Unlike Laser printing your labels, you can print as little as one label at a time if necessary with Thermal printer, whereas if you have say, eight labels on an A4 laser label page you would waste the remaining labels you don’t need, as you are not able to re print the sheets once they have gone through your printer, so obviously a big plus as this offers a lot less in the way of wastage, important with recycling being a daily habit of millions across the globe.
Thermal labels are easy to store, easy to load and really easy to print, there is no real down side. Unlike laser printing, thermal printing your labels is more or less ‘jam free’ with the labels being on a continuous roll, they are fed through your printer and simply come out finished the other end. The very nature of A4 Laser labels is that they are supplied on A4 sheets so your laser printer needs to looks after each sheet individually, think about it, there is a lot more that can cause a jam this way.
Going mobile! - Mobile Thermal Printers
Like a number of other companies, one of the leading manufacturers of thermal printers ‘Zebra Technologies’ has an amazing range of mobile printers that can be hand held or strapped to your belt for a superb hands free option, perhaps whilst you work your way around your warehouse, a really great benefit in mobile thermal label printing with a new generation of intelligent machines, work and label as you go, a big draw back for laser and inkjet printing, you would certainly need a big belt to carry one of these around in your quest of mobile labelling.
So in short, for warehouse, barcoding, pricing and instant labelling, for ease of use and economically sound, you really cannot go wrong with thermal printing your labels. It may be a little more expensive as a start-up situation, but the benefits of using thermal labels far out way the initial costs of the printers.
